The Dayton's Project expected to open in Spring 2020

The development in downtown Minneapolis will include a food hall, retail, and office space.

MINNEAPOLIS — If you work in the heart of downtown Minneapolis, it's hard not to notice the construction.

Especially at 7th and Nicollet.

"There's a lot happening," said Kate Schmidt.

She see's it and wonders when The Dayton's Project will finally open.

"Been going on for a couple years now, but it's very exciting to get something back in the building," said Schmidt.

"I think everyone can be well aware that the project is happening," said Mercedes Barsh with the Telos Group. 

She says Spring 2020 is now the target date.

"A little longer than expected, but I think it was necessary in getting it done right," said Barsh.

Tuesday she gave a tour of what's to come in the old Macy's building.

The development will include a 45,000 square foot Andrew Zimmern food hall and market. That will complement retail space.

Other tenants couldn't be named at this time.

The rest of the building will be turned into office space. It will incorporate the historic architecture of the building.

"Really exciting to be a part of a project like this," said Bob Gardner with Gardner Builders.

He says there is still more work to be done.

"So in terms of being ready for tenants we still have about 20 percent left," said Gardner.

He and so many other now anxiously awaiting for Spring of 2020.
